Whilst at an open air picnic concert I found my mind wondering around personal space and boundaries.
As more and more and more people arrived so the space between parties lessened. Some people completely oblivious to their neighbours others quietly shuffling forward and some giving "looks" :)
How does this relate to business?
I wondered what boundaries and personal space we

I've recently been approached by a Reading student who is looking for one week's work experience in September 2011 as part of the school curriculum. Although the placement is required for September, the plan needs to be finalised by March.
I know from experience that it's hard to find placements for students where they can get some real experience - ie not just making coffee and opening the mail. I've heard of brilliantly successful work placements…Continue
Stress is brought on by fear and negative thinking. Recently, a very worried woman said to me, "Oh! I don't have a good imagination", however, when I asked what did she worry about, the list was long and detailed. She did in fact have a fantastic imagination but it was not working to empower her. We have all the resources we need inside ourselves to life a more relaxed and fulfilling life, we may just need some help…Continue

Hi all, someone sent me this video earlier and I thought I'd share it. There have long been rumours about the effects of mobile phones and seeing as I'm glued to mine every minute I'm awake, I strongly hope there are no re-percussions down the line for myself or anyone else...watch this and see what you think:
To be fair, I rarely sit down with 4 phones directly around me and then call them - but to be fair, I've often got 2 mobiles on me and…Continue
It's always on my list of things to do, but it never seems to get priority.
I'm currently up to my eyes in work, which is great, but I still ought to try to find a little time now and then to contribute something to my online networking community.
Currently I'm working on an assignment for a small London-based firm, re-aligning existing staff contracts and producing new contracts, policies and procedures. Lovely job and I'm really enjoying…Continue

The role of the Managing Agent has changed greatly over the years but if you analyse the subject of complaints we receive then they fall in to 2 categories.
They are either to do with parking or refuse collection. I’ll tackle car parking first and refuse\recycling in my next blog.
The view is that Managing Agents should deal with car parking management and have an instant solution to all the parking problems that befall our residents. Often we hear the same story time and time…Continue

Getting to the root cause of a problem is sometimes difficult. In the cut and thrust of everyday business life it is all too easy to take the first idea or first solution to a problem and run with it. But what if the first idea or first solution merely points at a symptom of the problem and not to the root cause? A lot of time, effort and money can be wasted 'going down rabbit holes' when the real solution to the problem lies elsewhere.
In my blog 'taking a thought for a walk' I…Continue

Hi all, I saw the new Yell.com ad on TV last week and just wondered what you thought of it?
It's a modern take on the old classic J. R. Hartley advert but I don't like it for a number of reasons - and they all sum up for me, why Yell.com continues to miss a trick. Firstly, it's pretty much the exact same story line and outcome - except that instead of the old book, he now uses an app on his mobile to find…Continue

In a recent article, I wrote:
The theme of ambition kept coming up time and time again. But, it is more than just an ambition that centres on size or on money. It is an ambition that brings with it: “an eternal sense of dissatisfaction with what currently exists, a strong drive to make things better”; “a passion for doing something that really makes a difference”; “a belief that you can make it happen or actually see yourself doing it”; an imperative to…Continue

What are the other 74% going to be doing?
This was one of the questions raised by a recent presentation by Baker Tilly to Thames Valley IGT. the figures were based on the company's recent YouGov survey of 500 SMEs.
The survey also highlighted that business owners were more positive about their own business than their sector or region as a whole - so we're all above average!
The key objectives for the surveyed companes were top-line growth - in…Continue
